The tragedy is of course, they know all the answers, they are right about absolutely everything, and no-one is listening. Standard green behaviour in such a situation is to shout louder, but their doom laden message continues to fall on deaf ears as their utterances are exposed as being based on tea leaves, rather than facts.
If you look at every green message, it is based on a worst case scenario. It will contain more ifs, buts and maybes than the bible, which let's face it is up there with Dickens and Jackie Collins as enduring works of fiction.
So desperate are they to gain power, and force us (not them, of course) to toe the line, and sacrifice society and economy in the cause of environment, that they are practically frothing at the mouth. Recently they have railed against the removal of 20,000 hectares of dead trees because it "might" impact the food chain of the kiwi, and protested against the development of an industry worth billions because it "might" (although it never has before) impact the future of a species so successful at self destruction that it hardly needs our help to eliminate the remaining 55 creatures that exist.
But of course what can you expect from a party which is led by an outcast Australian communist, and locally numbers amongst it's supporters has-been, raddled old hags and effete, immature, Australian ANZAC haters. A sorry bunch indeed. So sorry that their modus operandi is based around avoiding the true test of support for any individual candidates - they know that is a lost cause, and instead standing for the Party vote, something which for most voters is an afterthought.
Elsewhere , the rest of the world has sprung the green conspiracy. The UK is cutting back on wind farms, Germany is investing in Nuclear, even the Netherlands and Sweden are backtracking on their once green inspired philosophies, for the simple reasons that
a) they are a waste of money and
b) they don't work.
So, NZ, wake up and smell the bacon. Dump the Greens from your electoral consciousness, vote for parties who address actual problems and deal in solutions, and party vote ANYBODY BUT Green
